Overall a good set for the price. I shopped around this was the best set I found for the price. The wood is much better then other sets I found. The main downside of the set is that the mallet shafts don't screw into the heads that well. All I did was put a screw through the bottom of the head into the shaft and that did the trick. I am very pleased with this product. I used and returned other sets before I found this one.

Recieved set yesterday, and unpacked this morning. At first inspection, finish quality is definatley lacking. Paint job on mallets looks like a five year old painted it, colors are not as vibrant as pictured - paint is thin, streaky and messy. Mallets went together well, and seem solid. The carrying case however, is in a word, unusable. After assembly, the mallets do not even fit into the flimsy, poorly constructed bag. I am not about to un-screw the mallets every time I pack up the set, as I have no desire to strip the threads....so the bag is a waste. Have not yet played with this set, but hopefully, the fun of the game will outweight the disappointment over quality of finish, and the unusable bag.

Comments about Franklin Advanced Deluxe Croquet Set:

I gave this set as a thank you gift to my sister and her family for our stay there a year ago. We returned this summer and I played with what I hoped to be a great improvement over their old beat up set. Instead I discovered the wood was very light weight, the plastic balls were horrible, and everyone preferred using the old set. I tried without success to hit a ball well without slicing, and finally returned to the old set and played a decent game.

    I got this for my son for Father's Day. Beautiful set and look to be very sturdy. It will get lots of hours of play and he is taking it on a family camping trip down south this weekend and it will be put to a lot of use there! If there are any problems with this set I will be sure to post.

        I was not impressed by the quality of the mallets. Plastic caps that spin and cheap feel. I hope its plays better than it feels. Deluxe?

          It is amazing that the service from Hayneedle is so great. The packages arrived on time with (no shipping fee.) The package was in great condition and just what I expected.The agent I spoke with was very helpful and professional.

          I highly recommend this company.
          Thank you.

            The case is not "A handy molded case makes transportation and storage easy" as described in the text related to this item, and shown in the photo. Rather, it is a soft sided case constructed with cheap fabric.
